A Dog is For Life, Not Just For Christmas

Once again, this Christmas will see the team at Dogs Trust Manchester giving dogs that have found themselves without a home, the best Christmas possible whilst they wait for their special someone.

The charity’s slogan, ‘A Dog is for life, not just for Christmas’ is as relevant today as it was when it was first adopted almost 40 years ago, as sadly each year hundreds of dogs are handed over to the team at the Manchester Rehoming Centre. The staff look after strays, smuggled puppies and of course dogs who have had to leave their families for a variety of reasons, from illness in the family to relationship breakdown or a change in working hours.

Whilst here at Dogs Trust Manchester, every dog is given everything they need but they all have their paws crossed in the hope of finding a forever family once more. Here are just some who are hoping to have found a space on the sofa in their ideal homes in time for Christmas.
